    Glorious Dawn, have you heard it?

    I thought this was fairly appropriate, given that we live on a planet beyond Earth. This really touched me, I hope you enjoy it, too. I have to believe you've all felt the longing that this song speaks to, that yearning as you vizualize galaxy beyond galaxy... First I recommend you go to this...

    Sledgy, it's not for months! The voting is now! The conference and all the coverage and new players won't be until March of 2010! So, you're right, no marketing this minute, but this is always in motion and we are planning now for tomorrow... JKB

    JOHN BATES - Needs Our Help With SXSW

    Clarification... Anyone can vote, whether they're attending or not. The speeches and panels go up online and so they're available to anyone/everyone. As I understand it, this is how it works. If our community pulls together and casts a lot of votes that is absolutely how it is supposed to...

    A Request for the Power of This Community!

    I think that for some virtual economies total hyperinflation, or maybe the more correct way to put it is devaluation is coming since they have no real grounding in the concept of scarcity and value. I think that some things going up in value/cost is fine, but if the whole underpinning comes out...

    FPC should watch this.

    This is an amazing speech. I think that there is a fine line between too little choice and too much. That said, I think that the larger point here is well taken! It's like the forums. If FPC listened to everything people think they want they wouldn't like it. I promise! :D I know MA and FPC...

    Will videogames become better than life?

    Video Games vs. life? I think this video is very thought provoking, as David says. Obviously it is art and not reality television, but that's good! It has the passion and sophomoric qualities of a young creator, but that's what made the Doors so good, too! And, it makes a very real point about...
